TORONTO, June 9 A Canadian appeals court judge
has refused a bail request by Karim Baratov, whom U.S.
prosecutors have charged worked with Russian agents in a
high-profile breach of Yahoo Inc email accounts.
"At the end of the day, Mr Baratov remains a significant
flight risk, and is alleged to have committed a serious
offence," the ruling said. "The application is dismissed."
Baratov was arrested in March on U.S. charges that he was
paid to break into at least 80 email accounts by Russian
intelligence agents who masterminded the 2014 theft of data from
some 500 million Yahoo Inc user accounts.
